This was my first show where I did not work with a team. One of the actors, the talented Hannah Beynon, worked on a couple of costumes, but the bulk of the costuming, and all the props and sets fell to myself and my Propman, Kirby Gehman.
Mariam Berstein, the troupe’s amazing director, had a very strong vision for this play and provided drawing for each of the costumes and strong ideas for colour and look. It was a pleasure to work with her and on a very limited budget ($250) help bring her vision to life.
In the end, I built and assembled 24 costumes for 10 actors in under six weeks, mostly on my own!
